AVerMedia Launches Live Gamer BOLT, World’s First External 4K HDR and 240 FPS Video Capture Box.
Taking the Live Gamer 4K and thinking outside the box – Uncompressed video capture, mind-blowing low latency, and great design – External video capturing will never be the same.
FREMONT, CA – April 14, 2020 – AVerMedia Technologies, Inc., a leader in digital video and audio, is proud to announce the launch of the Live Gamer BOLT today. The latest addition to AVerMedia’s 4K video capture lineup, Live Gamer BOLT—shortened as the BOLT— is the world’s first external video capture device to record 4K60 HDR10 and Full HD at 240 frames per second, featuring ThunderboltTM 3 connectivity. With the BOLT’s ultra-low latency, award-winning aesthetics, impressive video capturing power, and RGB lighting effects, AVerMedia has set a new standard in the consumer video capture industry.
Innovative Video Capturing Capabilities
Thanks to the BOLT’s innovative video capturing capabilities, content creators will be able to record HDR10 content up to 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) at 60 frames per second. For hardcore PC gamers, the BOLT can pass-through and record Full HD video at a whopping 240 frames per second. This gives PC gamers a more responsive gaming experience in addition to capturing epic slow-mo highlight footage.
Acclaimed Ultra-Low Latency
The BOLT holds fast to AVerMedia’s worldwide acclaimed ultra-low latency with a preview latency of less than 50ms. Due to Intel’s powerful and robust ThunderboltTM 3 connectivity, the BOLT can deliver uncompressed video capture without compromise. With a built-in video processing unit, the BOLT is capable of up-down video resolution scaling, frame rate conversion, and even HDR to SDR tone mapping on the fly without affecting CPU or GPU performance.
At the time of its launch, the Live Gamer BOLT has already received two prestigious awards: The Taiwan Excellence 2020 Award for its industry innovation, and the Red Dot Award for its outstanding and elegant design, making the BOLT a leader in both the hardware and design aspects in the industry.
Because of its small form factor and the ability to connect to an audio mixer through its 3.5mm Line In, the BOLT allows content creators to move their setup and cover LIVE events anywhere with ease, or bring studio-like video quality to their personal online content.
